Charming couple’s cottage offers centrally located accommodation in the heart of the historic town of Tenterden, ideal for keen walkers looking for a countryside escape.
Set on the north-eastern edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this little gem of a cottage is the perfect romantic getaway for your smooth and furry loved ones. Known as the ‘Jewel of the Weald’, Tenterden offers over 1000 years of history, glorious Georgian and Victorian architecture, three wonderful dog-friendly pubs and exquisite landscape all around. Catch a steam train on the Kent & East Sussex Railway, visit Dame Ellen Terry’s 16th-century Smallhythe Place (dogs outside only), and enjoy delicious local wines at Chapel Down’s canine-cordial Tenterden Vineyard (both 3 miles).
Inside you’ll find a sweet and traditional Kent cottage interior. Unwind in the intimate lounge, amidst old beams and around the glowing wood burner, reminiscing on wild days of adventure, tranquil country wanders and dramatic new discoveries. Prepare fine local produce in the bright and breezy kitchen, and enjoy al fresco delights on the patio or in the charming summer house at the end of the garden. Upstairs, soak in a steaming bath before retiring to your gorgeous king-size bedroom with its fabulous brass bed.
Further afield, explore the quaint winding streets, independent shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries of Rye (11 miles), and Hastings’ beautiful beach (check seasonal guidelines), castle, parks and gardens, museums and sea front (20 miles). The Tenterden steam train will take you to magnificent 14th-century Bodiam Castle (10 miles), surrounded by a moat that reflects its majesty so splendidly (dogs in the grounds only). Doggies will love to race free on the golden stretches of Camber Sands and Broomhill Sands (15 miles), Winchelsea and Pett Level Beaches (14.5/17 miles) and the huge shingle shoreline of St Leonards Beach (20 miles). You and your canine companions will love Bedgebury National Pinetum and Forest (15 miles), one of the many local beauty spots.
